Title (EN) DEVICES FOR OHMICALLY HEATING A FLUID
(FR) DISPOSITIFS DE CHAUFFAGE OHMIQUE D'UN FLUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) An ohmic heater for heating a conductive fluid has a plurality of electrodes mounted to a structure with spaces between the electrodes. The electrodes (14) are selectively connect to poles (38, 40) of a power supply, so that some electrodes are connected to the poles and others remain isolated from the poles. Shunting switches are provided for connecting two or more of the isolated electrodes to one another. The shunting switches allow formation of a large number of different connection schemes having a variety of different electrical conduction paths through fluid in the spaces and a variety of resistances between the poles with relatively few electrodes and spaces.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de chauffage ohmique pour chauffer un fluide conducteur présentant une pluralité d'électrodes montées sur une structure avec des espaces entre les électrodes. Les électrodes (14) sont sélectivement connectées à des pôles (38, 40) d'une alimentation électrique, de telle sorte que certaines électrodes sont connectées aux pôles et d'autres restent isolées des pôles. Des commutateurs de dérivation sont prévus pour connecter au moins deux des électrodes isolées les unes aux autres. Les commutateurs de dérivation permettent la formation d'un grand nombre de différents schémas de connexion ayant une variété de chemins de conduction électrique différents à travers un fluide dans les espaces et une variété de résistances entre les pôles avec relativement peu d'électrodes et d'espaces.
